Automating backups

I want to automate the backup procedure (EXP), so that it can automatically back up my database on the schedule time. The other thing is that the dump file I want would be with system date and time appended.

I want to automate the backup procedure (EXP), so that it can automatically back up my database on the schedule time (maybe twice in a day, at lunch and then at the end). The other thing is that the dump file I want would be with system date and time appended. Thanks.
In my opinion, Oracle's export utility is not a viable backup solution. Please consider using RMAN for your backups. I highly recommend reading the Oracle documentation on backup and recovery.
